A commercial package by Charles River Associates, OpenSesame! attempts to
help you with your Macintosh Finder activities. It suggests rules to you, e.g.
"I notice you launch Eudora on startup, would you like me to put it in the
Startup Folder?". OpenSesame! uses neural net techniques to attempt to
make sense out of your actions. Unfortunately, OpenSesame! gets virtually
no cooperation from the operating system, and therefore makes a lot of
common sense mistakes like "I notice you open Eudora after you open
Inbox..." However, I think OpenSesame! is the commercial example of AI-
based Learning Interface Agents, and a herculean programming effort.
